There’s a lot of debate around the College Football Playoff rankings these days, particularly with regards to how the committee should handle a 1-loss Alabama team.

  • Sugar Bowl vs. Oklahoma


  • Citrus Bowl vs. Wisconsin


  • Outback Bowl vs. Penn State


  • Orange Bowl vs. Virginia


  • Belk Bowl vs. Virginia Tech
